How can I avoid the data writing error (buffer overflow error) when recording to media?

     

    Empty the media by the camcorder before recording.

    [Reason]
    If a memory card is used repeatedly, garbage data may accumulate, preventing the image data from being written at the guaranteed speed. In this case, recording may stop suddenly.

    [Remedy]
    If this happens, empty the media to avoid the writing error. Emptying the media can erase more data than ordinary formatting.

    [Connection and Setup]
    Use an AC adapter.

    [Method]
    MENU > OTHERS > MEDIA FORMAT > Empty

    [Note]
      - If you perform this operation, all stored data is deleted.
        To avoid the loss of important images, you should save them on a computer or external drive, before formatting the media.
      - A memory card formatted (initialised) by a computer does not have guaranteed compatibility with your camcorder.
        Format or empty the media by the camcorder.
      - It may take from several minutes to several hours to erase data, depending on the capacity.
